Qatar Airways CEO Akbar al Baker poses during the hand over ceremony of the first Airbus A350 for Qatar Airways in Toulouse, southwestern France, on Monday. After years of delays, Airbus delivered its first A350 wide-body jet Monday, to Qatar Airways. The A350 XWB is intended as Airbus’ best hope for catching up in the long-haul market that is dominated by Boeing's 777 and 787, but has been plagued by delays and a multibillion dollar revamp.
